The CAVAL Reciprocal Borrowing Program allows staff and students of participating Victorian academic libraries to borrow from other participating libraries.


To join the Library, complete a Library membership application.

  • Once you have submitted the application you will receive an email with your borrower details, so it is important that you enter your correct email address, so that you can start to access library services and resources.
  • If you do not receive an email or if you have questions about the process or membership, please contact the Library.

Membership is free and lasts for 12 months.

To renew your membership, contact the Library.
